Ranieri: PSG draw will help Monaco develop

The 61-year-old was happy with his side's display against the reigning champions as they maintained their two-point lead over the reigning Ligue 1 champions

Claudio Ranieri feels Sunday's 1-1 draw against Paris Saint-Germain was a good result for Monaco as it will help his young side to continue to develop in Ligue 1.

Radamel Falcao cancelled out Zlatan Ibrahimovic's fifth-minute opener at the Parc des Princes to keep Ranieri's side top of Ligue 1 early in the campaign and Ranieri was thrilled to earn a share of the spoils away to the champions.

"It was a good game and a good result for Monaco. I think that PSG played well and put on a good show for the fans, as Monaco did," Ranieri said.

"We tried to win this game until the very last moment. I am very happy with the result away from home. I think we had two results in mind – to win or to draw, so I am very happy with my players' performance against such a great side.

"There are many players in my squad without any experience of playing in Ligue 1 and they had to play against PSG. They played against great players tonight so I think that was great for my younger players who can use this game to develop."

Monaco are two points clear of PSG at the top of the league after six matches.
